As Strongman

In 2018, Muvingi pulled a haulage truck at the National Sports Stadium on Zimbabwe Defence Forces Day. Revealing how he became strong, Jonathan Muvingi told The Herald:

"I go to the gym every day from 4am to 6am before leaving for work. Then I train from 8am to 12 noon before breaking for lunch, I then resume training from 5pm till late. So basically I spend most of my time at the gym lifting weights. Since I am a wrestler by profession, I have been training since 2007 but have recently just upped my game on heavyweight lifting. When training, I don’t lift anything less than 550 kilogrammes and for bench pressing I need from 370 to 400 kilogrammes."


In 2021, Muvingi was invited to compete in the African Kurash Championships which were held in Cameroon from the 26th to the 30th of August 2021.[2]

As A Wrestler

In January 2020, Jonathan Muvingi won a bronze medal in the World Wrestling Championships held in Iran. He lost his manager Peter Kwarare to Covid-19 and for months he battled to find matches.[2]
